Is Peaceful Revolution Possible in Mexico? Assessing the First Year of Mexico's "Fourth Transformation"
From History Department
Arizona State University
Dr. Stephen Lewis
Dr. Beezley and Dr. Lewis discuss Mexico’s 2018 presidential election. In a sweeping victory, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) promised to lead Mexico's "fourth transformation” preceded by three very brutal and ambivalent “transformations” in Mexico’s history. Dr. Lewis questions if this is Mexico’s last chance to get things right, whereas Dr. Beezley believes the Mexican people are resilient and will most likely survive this historical change. This presentation generated many questions and further discussion by Chico State students and faculty members.
